SQL Navigator for Oracle 7.4 - Release Notes

Database Link Editor

Use the Database Link Editor to view, create or define database links.

About Database Links

A database link allows access to a username on a remote database through the local database. A public database link (which only a DBA can create) allows the remote database access to all users of the local database.

The characteristics and usage of this database object are described in Oracle documentation.



  • The SQL Navigator Database Link editor will try to automatically add the domain name when required by the server. However if the user cannot see the view v$parameter, then the domain name is not automatically added. The user should enter a fully qualified database link name in the New Database Link dialog.
  • Due to limitations in the Oracle Data Dictionary it is not possible for Extract DDL to correctly apply the SHARED and AUTHENTICATED clauses in a CREATE DATABASE LINK statement
